Jean RIGAUD
(1912 - 1999) Painter to the French Ministry of Marine 1956

He went to the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Paris (André Dewambez's studio).
In 1954 he had his first exhibition at the Galerie Durand-Ruel. He exhibited painting that he had done during his travels to Spain, Egypt, Morocco, and all the west coast of France. As an Official Marine Painter, he embarked on the Jean Bart on a voyage to the United States. This was the first of many sea passages under the auspices of the Marine Nationale.
Passionate about islands, he appreciates the solitude which allows him to meditate at leisure before selecting his subject. His inner drive shows itself in his nervous brushwork, using rich, sensual coloured paint,often worked with a knife. Boats on a beach, sparkelingly coloured harbours, fishing villages, reveal that the artist's deepest feelings are not always without melancoly.
From the very start, he chose big subjects. He developed his style using to advantage pure colour tones ( ochres, yellows and red cadmium) which stand out triumphantly against the grey skies.
Jean Rigaud is placed without doubt in the great tradition of realist and impressionist painters.
His canvasses are exhibited worldwide in major art galleries. A number of his works have been acquired by the French State, La Ville de Paris, le Musée de la Marine etc.
